of the risks. host: our first call comes from steve and longview, texas. caller: i would like to ask the listeners and miss williams what she thinks about if we have a war that it incorporates the draft. are there going to be 18 year old women and men? guest: i think the chances of a draft coming back at this point are very slim. we have had an all volunteer force for several decades and have been able to meet all of the recruiting goals without having to resort to a draft even though we have been at war for over a decade now. i think the chances of staying that way are very strong. as to whether or not should there be some incredibly large or the does require a return of the draft, that would be up to civilian leadership to decide whether or not put women on the list of those who have to register for selective service and the part of the draft. i honestly do not see it likely that we return to a draft any time. host: next up is john from louisiana. he is on the line for republicans. caller: my concern about the women in combat is not a qualification or their ability to do the job. i

things, they will be able to grow. a personal point of privilege, steve, many people call c-span in the morning and always say thank you for c-span and other i think that's good, but i think this c-span announcers and commentators like yourself should spend more time in thanking the people for calling c-span, because they do take a little portion of our money each month to keep you guys running. but there should be more thanksgiving to the callers. we need to just thank each other. thank you guys. host: thank you for a phone call, robert. let me use his point to go back to something you wrote about earlier this week. "the republican party in opposition." you point to patrick moynihan of new york, why is the model for the republican party today? guest: he wrote an article in 1975 in which he said -- he had just come back from being ambassador to india -- he said, it is unusual for the u.s. to think of itself as being in opposition to international bodies like the united nations, so crucial in creating these bodies, and shaping them, but it was clear by the mid-70s the u.s. wa

that is what she is saying publicly. there's no real news there. twitter was up in arms over steve kroft not really pressing president.nd the with mrs. clinton on her way out of the state department. host: clinton did mention in the segment that she had considered president obama -- if hillary clinton had won the white house, she mentioned that she had considered president obama to be part of her cabinet if she was president. guest: that's right. it is surprising how highly they both spoke of the tether. in 2008 it was a bitterly contested primary and it -- it seemed that the relationship was coined to take a long time to repair, but they both said -- she said she would have considered obama to be in her cabinet. obviously, obama offered her the secretary of state position. so they have repaired that relationship. it is kind of surprising to hear how highly they see each other in the wake of that primary. host: jonathan, thanks for talking with us. we talked about clinton was asked about her plans for 2016. here's a piece by a republican and former capitol hill press secretary in the bal

, but no response the other way from the leaders in iran. >> yes, sir, in the back? >> senator steve chaney with the american security project it i am pleased to hear you talk about weapons of mass destruction, but i would like to hear your thoughts about our weapons of mass destruction. you would start the caps at 1550 with more in reserve. is there the possibility of looking at new -- and not building a new submarine or bomber and saving money? >> at some point we have to decide at what level do we need to be from a national and military standpoint to be viable and to protect the american people and to be seen. i think that the larger question is that we need to focus on, rather than reduction, what is happening around the world, what is happening in north korea, what is happening in iran, and what kind of access are some of these terrorist groups going to have to wmd capabilities. that is a greater threat. i give senator lugar credit for being part of reducing that capability, destroying some of those older weapons and so forth and so on, but the real challenge before us is those nations

, these antagonistic actions have been met by silence, silence from this administration. as steve haste and tom joshlin reported in "the weekly standard," the release of the photos was a clear attempt to intimidate the americans and make sure that the f.b.i. could not act with impunity. they warned the tunisian government that they allowed the f.b.i. to begin investigating your sons under postrevolutionary protection, end of quote. considering the same week of the benghazi attack, our embassies in cairo, tune is was overrun in a coordinated plot. in each case, the american flag was ripped down and burnt in a -- and a black al qaeda flag was flown in its place. we're fortunate and blessed that none of these resulted in the loss of life. they were nonetheless an attack on america by a hostile group. as the administration's own state department website states, quote, any attack on an embassy is an attack on the country it represents. every embassy and consulate that was overrun on september 11 is a public attack on america. in the months that have followed, this administration demonstrated that there are
